Day students may stay overnight in the dormitories on a school night with proper communication between a parent and Student Services. Requests for overnights should be made at least 24 hours in advance.
The visiting student must check in with the appropriate resident faculty member at dinner and must adopt all boarding routines – quiet study hours, signing in and out, room check-in, etc. Day students may not drive cars while they are living in the dormitories. Students should provide their own pillows and bed linens or sleeping bags.
Day students may spend up to three nights at EW each semester without charge. Any additional overnights must receive special permission from Student Services, and there is a charge of $25 per night.
The location of the visiting student’s sleeping quarters is determined by Student Services. During the week, all overnight guests must sleep in the one day student room (to be reserved with Student Services on a first-come, first-served basis).
On Friday and Saturday nights, sleepovers in friends’ rooms and/or a slumber party approach are acceptable, with resident faculty permission. Day student families should not assume a bed in the dormitories will always be available for day student overnight requests. In the event that no bed is available for a requested overnight, the day student and her family must be prepared to make other arrangements.
